Welcome to the Medical Faculty

Why Düsseldorf is an outstanding place for excellent research?

Researchers at the Medical Faculty conduct innovative research that is nationally and internationally competitive. Their outstanding research achievements across the spectrum from basic science to experimental medicine have been widely recognized. The main reasons for Düsseldorf’s preeminent position in medical research are interdisciplinarity and support of young academics. These efforts have been rewarded with funding of three Collaborative Research Centers (Sonderforschungsbereiche), three Research Units (Forschergruppen), and five Graduate Schools (Graduiertenkollegs).
